Derry City has added to their squad with the signing of Scottish midfielder Grant Gillespie.

The 28 year old is a former Hamilton, Dundee United and Raith Rovers player and has been on trial with the Candystripes over the past week.

He has signed to the end of the season.

Derry Manager Declan Devine is delighted with the signing and it now gives his more options in midfield…


Gillespie's signing comes the week of the derby with Finn Harps in Ballybofey.

Derry are chasing down third place in the Premier Division and a European spot.
